Steve Lukather says Eddie Van Halen recorded his iconic guitar solo on Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” at 5150 studios, not Sunset Sound as some stories have claimed.
Lukather recently stopped by the Sunset Sound studios in Los Angeles for a Sunset Sound Rountable interview. Host Drew Dempsey asked Lukather if he could set the record straight on where Eddie’s solo was recorded. Lukather shared the whole story behind tracking all the guitar parts on “Beat It”. The whole story can be heard in the video above.
